    Absolute Garbage...

    I take good care of all of my stuff, yet some how I have gone through 4 of these stupid power supplies in the 3 years I've had my computer.

    All of them break due to the weak joint in the power connection. I'm really upset about the low quality of these joints.

    Another Unsatisfied Customer

    This is my third power adaptor in two years. My second lasted less than 4 months. For the cost these are just junk - what is going on?!? I thought when I purchased a Mac I was getting good quality. Extremely disappointed.

    I wish there was a third party solution

    Unacceptable quality. I have gone through many of these power adapters, each one frays at the L connector and shorts. Dangerous product. I will seriously be reconsidering buying anymore Apple products due to my absolute displeasure with dealing with these endless power problems. This review has to be cut short because my computer is about to run out of batteries.

    Complete piece of junk

    Unacceptably poor quality. I'm on my third charger; each one breaks faster than the last. I treat my computer and supplies carefully, but even if that weren't the case, it's a laptop charger; you shouldn't have to handle it with kid gloves.

    For the record, the charger for my first Macbook never broke; I got it in early 2006 and used it until it was stolen in late 2008. Nearly three years of use without a single problem. This new product is obviously faulty.

    The ridiculous price and one glance at the other reviews says this is nothing less than robbery.

    The MagSafe really is a feat of consumer electronics.
    this is cheap when you consider the thought that went into the product.
    The reason that my original one broke was human error.

    Love it.

    Disgusted with the Quality

    I am on my third charger already. I can't see any problems with the unit other than a few scratches on the transformer cube. Both units refuse to charge my MacBook consistently. I have both styles (T-connector and the I-connector) and am completely disappointed by both. Unfortunately, I have no choice but to purchase a third unit and can only expect it to last a few more months before it fails.

    Horrible Quality for Such a High Price

    The charger lasted me for around 6 months or 6 1/2 months. On top of that I bought a 3 year coverage BUT they did not replace it for whatever reason. However being a poor college student I could not afford a new one so my Dad and I tinkered till we made it . And by the way it did not break because of me, it broke because it frayed. So yeah... Apple I adore you, but you are making me slowly into a PC girl.

    Overall quality- ok price= D:

    i own a Late 2011 MacBook Pro and i have the adapter that came with it when i bought it about 3 months ago. there is a huge slash near the adapter end of the cord but i guess i dont treat it "great". and for the price, IT IS OUTRAGEOUS! $80 for a charger?! my old PC charger only cost $30 to replace and it only broke once because of a dog chewing it. I think Apple needs to sit down and think hard about the price of this and a lot of products.

    Poor design

    For the price that you pay for the computer, you would expect that the charger would last at least three years. I like the magnetic charger, however would have much preferred a reliable charger than one with magnets on it.

    Once your warranty has expired, don't expect them to replace it - you'll just have to buy it at their hiked-up exorbitant price because Apple knows that it's the only charger that you can use.

  • 1.0 out of 5 stars


    I've gone through 3 of these adapters. My first one (the old model) lasted 3 years. Hen I replaced it with this model last year, the magnet came loose and I had to tape the charger to my laptop to stay in place. As soon as this was unbearable, I took it to the store and try replaced it since the warrantee still covered it. The third one I've had only 8 months if even and it completely broke where the cord attaches to the magnet. My next adapter will be purchased from an alternate manufacturer or third party seller because I can't afford to keep buying these fragile things.

    Doesn't last

    I bought my MacBook Pro in March of 2011 and today (soon after the warranty went out) the rubber protection tore open, and is now bearing wires right by where it plugs into my computer.

    easily broke!!!

    I think I dont need to say anything since this was the third charger which I bought for my Macbook within 2 years. Such a cheap product for the coolest computer ever. Wonder what Apple's thinking about this... :|

    Already Not working (like everyone else apparently)

    I've owned my macbook for less than 2 years. I keep it in my house and rarely move it around. My 60W magsafe power adapter recently stopped working. Looking at the other reviews, it looks like I'm not the only one. This is bad business by Apple.
    How can they make a product that seems to repeatedly fail within two to three years and not do anything about it? They usually put out great products, but this is one of the worst of any brand.

    Very Poor Product

    My original cable has finally given up the ghost after 18 months however during this time I have had days when the charger just would not work rendering my MBP 13" useless. It would then start charging again after a day or two! I may just bin and go back to Sony as I'm not prepapred to pay £65 for another unrelaible, poorly constructed product.

    What a disappointment and financial waste.

    I love my MacBook Pro, and I loved the power adapter. Now I see what everybody's talking about. I have had my Mac for a year and some months and the power adapter won't even connect enough to power the LED on it. Apple says they listen to their customers, if they truly do, they will change this piece of &#^¥. I paid over $1000 for a computer and I expected quality. One star? I only put it because they made me.

    Worst product they make

    Sure it sounds like a great idea, and really it is a great idea. Where this product fails is the execution. The quality is really poor, but you would never know it by the price! Every single one I've had has failed after about a year.
    Don't try telling the apple store employee that though. Every time I've gone to get a new one and complain about the faulty product I've only heard what I did wrong. Of course I must be the problem.
    Too bad you don't have a choice, gotta charge your MacBook somehow.
